The NAL 9602-LP is an ultra-low power consumption tracker designed for SBD data communication using the Iridium® satellite network.
The 9602-LP measures 2.7” x 2.2” x 0.9”, weighs less than five ounces and can be attached to high-value assets such as vehicles, shipping containers, barges, railcars, trailers, or buoys. It is also being used to track environmentally demanding platforms including helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, rockets, high-altitude balloons, ships, speed-boats, ground vehicles and hand-emplaced and air-deployed remote sensors.
The 9602-LP can be used with a wide variety of GPS and Iridium antennas, including small vehicle patch antennas and larger aviation TSO dual-mode antennas, and requires an external power supply of between 6.5 and 32 volts.
The 9602-LP can send either standard or 256-bit AES encrypted GPS reports at a pre-programmed interval ranging from once every ten seconds to once every seven days. The interval can be changed remotely while the unit is in the field.
The 9602-LP has a guarded Emergency switch to alert the recipient of an emergency situation, and five LEDs to indicate the status of power, GPS fix, Iridium connection, SBD transmission and emergency mode.
